Haydn/Boccherini – Cello Concerto In C/Cello Concerto In B-Flat
2 in stock (backorders allowed)
This LP comes from the 5xLP boxset that was released in November 2017 for the 30th anniversary of death of Jacqueline du Pré. It uses the 24-BIT/96kHz remastering made at Abbey Road in 2011 for Japanese SACD versions. Jacqueline du Pré, performing with one of the conductors most closely associated with her career, brings characteristic exuberance, passion and colour to two cello concertos rooted in the 18th-century.
In his memoir A Life in Music, Daniel Barenboim wrote: “I have never encountered anyone for whom music was such a natural form of expression as it was for Jacqueline … She had a capacity to imagine sound such as I never met in any other musician.”
